Are we witnessing a shrinking of the lag time between what we dream about and what we create? According to you, what ignites this leap in dream to steam?
If you look at human progress through time lapse photography, you know when you do time laps and you can see a plant actually growing and aiming towards the sun? I think that if we could somehow look at human progress over the last hundred years through time laps, you would see people thinking buildings into existence. You would see skyscrapers being erected at the speed at which people think: Let's design this building, okay, I will fund it, okay, this bank gave us a loan, okay, and the buildings just grow as organic as a plant aiming towards the sun. I think we would come to understand technology as literally sprouting the way that plants sprout. And I think that the acceleration of technology is understood through the lens of this time lapse effect. And to say: We are moving into a world where progress will look as if through time lapse and how does that change? Well, it means that we can render things into existence at the speed of thought. So shrinking the buffer time. Shrinking the time that the programme takes to render 'I want to build a building' and the building getting built. In the physical space. We have already transcended that into digital space. But now with nano-technology it's like in a physical space.
